You should try to feed them multiple times a day and remove the uneaten food after 15 minutes. Frog ponds kept year-round may establish a permanent breeding pond. You may use small, non-sharp aquarium gravel, or gather sand from a river bank. If you hear a vocabulary word while I am reading, raise your hand.
The frog gulps air into its mouth, closes its mouth and nostrils, and moves the bottom of its mouth upwards to make its oral cavity very small. Alternatively, use a liquid calcium supplement intended for aquariums, adding one or drops for every quart liter of water whenever you change the water. Yes, the competition for survival is far too high among the tadpoles. Then, the tadpoles will swim to find food. Tadpoles are more like fish than what they grow up to be.
Or you can put the worms directly into their water. The book also includes an information section, to practice reference skills. But it is also temperature dependant, so during cold spells it may take a bit longer or even be suspended till the temperatures go up. If the frog species requires a two-part tank or a fully aquatic tank, treat it as you would an aquarium tank. If you think you might find a baby frog in the place, say tadpole.
Whether in air or water, the frog needs a natural base to walk on. Rainwater is as good as it gets. But I CAN tell you that raising tadpoles can be much more than just fun- it is easy and educational too!
For land-dwelling species, provide a dish of rainwater or other frog-safe water large enough that the frogs can sit in it up to their shoulders.
However, since most of the folks writing me with this question don't live anywhere near publicly accessible ponds, my first thought would be to ask at the local pet stores whether they have any contacts for getting some tadpoles.
For average home ponds, use an icecube tray- 1 cube every couple of days should be enough.
